Abstract

In this paper the participation of young women in the labour force in Serbia is discussed, following two econometric approaches most recently used in the analysis of the binary choice model. The parametric probit and the semiparametric single-index models are specified and estimated and a formal test for the selection of the appropriate model specification is conducted. Following the estimation outputs of the selected participation equation, an economic interpretation of the importance of the factors that determine the propensity to work of young women in Serbia is given.
